No prob paré!

I'd hate to have those new HIDs blow prematurely from too much moisture.

I also mounted the ballasts like the pics above, no problems with that. The lights though are VERY bright and i'm glad I got the 6000k, with just a hint of blue. When I completed install, I tried to adjust the headlight leveler on the drivers side so I won't blind people but broke the adjuster in the process, so that sucks. Thought it was metal but it must be plastic.

All in all I hope these bulbs last a while because of the clearance issue on the driver side installation. Took a while for them to get here (shipping problems with UPS not syncron). I am satisfied with the brightness and plug-n-play factor of the bulbs but not with GM's drivers side clearance issue.
glad to hear you like to kits. I am glad i mentioned the reverse polarity thing i have no idea why but every aftermarket HID kit i have used has always had that problem anyway everything should last a while

Hella Ballast
Philips Bulbs
Bosch Relays/cables

With those brands backing the kits up i doubt u will have a problem. ANYWAY ENJOY and thanks for the positive review.

Have you seen pics of the HID bulb being submersed in a cup of water? HID's take moisture quite well. I have had a set on my Avalanche now for 3 years with no problems.

i have a question about the bulb itself...if the bulb goes out on these hid's, can you just buy a new bulb or do you have to get a whole new setup? and what kinda bulb would you be buying if it was just a bulb to replace?

the reason for the reverse polarity issue is due to having a BCM. Older vehicles are (+) switched. Newer BCM vehicles are (-) switched.

Also for anyone wondering - here is a video of my HIDs warming up. http://home.cogeco.ca/~pteahan2/Colorado/HID_warmup.avi (right-click, save-as).
Mine arent the same as the ones syncron is selling but its the same color change effect as they warm up. mine are 6000K. they change from blue to white once they are completely warmed up.

How does one go about using the 14 month warranty ( if needed of course ).

well you need to make sure that the you keep your receipt( Shipment insert & paypal reciept)

then if lets say 12months down the line your bulb blows then u just email me with the problem i will ask for a copy of the shipment insert(includes what u purchase i.e 9006 6000k etc) and a copy of the paypal reciept and if it is still in warranty which after 12months it would be then i would contact my manufacture and have them ship out a replacement bulb etc to you but all shipping costs are on you. So if it costs $30 or so to send out a replacement kit etc you pay the cost and a new one will be sent.

Like i mentioned the warranty is handled by the manufacture not me or my company, and they require shipping etc to be paid for.

hope that helps.

So, as far as warranty is concerned, do we have to send back the bad bulb(s)?

If so, would we have to do it before the manufacturer will ship us a replacement bulb?

If we needed to purchase a replacement bulb, would you ship those, or do those ship from the manufacturer as well?

the manufacture has 2 options with shipping warranty stuff. For example **not exact numbers** if you want to ship the item back it may cost you $20 and they will send a new one to you when they receive the money and the product OR if you don't want to send it back then it may cost $40 and when they receive the money they will ship out a new one to you etc. but these kits are built well so i doubt there will be a problem.

If you need to purchase replacement bulbs then you can order them through me. They will be shipped direct from the manufacture but it will not take as long as they did last time.

My manufacture has never taken this long to ship stuff out they said it was because of Chinese new year and some issues involving UPS down there. But everything is resolved and new orders should be delivered within 10-14 days of placing the order.

yes of course comes in a pair.

Single beam bulb= only hi or only low filiment on a bulb

dual beam bulb = high and low on filiment on the same physical bulb.
